“CIRENAS exists to create transformative connections between people and the environment through education, research, integration and innovation.”
Study Abroad in Costa Rica this summer! Course Themes: Marine Ecology, Outdoor Leadership and Permaculture. Applications due by May 12, 2014.
CIRENAS offers 1-3 week-long short courses for middle school, high school, college, graduate and adult participants.
In order to focus our efforts more fully on our transition to our new campus we have decided not to run the 2014 Semester Program.
The Caletas-Ario National Wildlife Refuge is in jeopardy due to environmental degradation, illegal fishing, fires and turtle egg poaching.
Our place-based semester programs, summer programs and short courses create authentic, hands-on, learning experiences for students of all ages.
Students and researchers join efforts with local stakeholders in order to conduct action research projects focused on the creation of a more sustainable future.
Homestays, service learning, stakeholder meetings and working together towards common goals help students and stakeholders make life changing connections.
“Necessity is the mother of invention” and our off the grid campus surrounded by an imperiled wildlife refuge inspires action, adjustments and ideas.
